Andy Uhler, of KUT-FM (90.5) down in Austin, will be walkin' the streets of Deep Ellum for the next couple of days for a story about the past, present and future of Deep Ellum. Picked a good time to do it, before the rest of the landmark collection of early 20th-century storefronts collapse; hope he doesn't get bonked in the noggin by falling bricks, which would make for one hell of a story, admittedly. So if you see a guy walking Commerce St. with a microphone, feel free to tell him what you think of the hood; only, please, try not to curse. --Robert Wilonsky

Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
